Complete List of 2015 Golden Globe Nominees: ‘Birdman’ Leads the Flock, Angelina Jolie’s ‘Unbroken’ Gets Snubbed

The 2015 Golden Globes list of nominees has been released on Dec. 11, 2014, getting quite a few nods and snubs. Here’s a rundown of the list of nominees for the 72nd Golden Globe Awards. Read on for further details.

On Thursday, Dec. 11, 2014, the nominees for the 2015 Golden Globe Awards were announced by Peter Krause, Kate Beckinsale, Jeremy Piven and Paula Patton at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.


The comedic-drama, “Birdman,” which tells the story of a former superhero actor attempting to make a Broadway comeback, leads the flock with seven nominations: Best Comedy, Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu for Best Screenplay and Best Director, Michael Keaton for the Best Comedic Actor category and Emma Stone and Edward Norton for their supporting roles.

“The Theory of Everything,” which centers on the life of a young Stephen Hawking, makes it to the Best Drama category, along with “Boyhood,” “Foxcatcher,” “The Imitation Game” and “Selma.”

Jennifer Aniston received her Globe nomination for her indie film “Cake,” which earned her nods and applauses for her role as a woman addicted to painkillers.

Reese Witherspoon earns her fourth Globe nomination for the movie, “Wild.” Witherspoon has been nominated three times for the Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical category, for which she took home the award for the movie “Walk the Line” in 2005. For the 72nd Golden Globes, Witherspoon will compete for the Best Actress in a Drama category, along with Jennifer Aniston in “Cake,” Felicity Jones in “The Theory of Everything,” Julianne Moore in “Still Alice” and Rosamund Pike in “Gone Girl.”

While some nominations received nods, other hopefuls were snubbed. Angelina Jolie, who used to be an active participant in the Globes, did not receive any nominations in the 2015 Golden Globe Awards for her movie “Unbroken.”

Prepare for a night full of fun and laughter, as the 72nd Golden Globe Awards will be hosted by Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, who have previously hosted the Golden Globe Awards in 2013 and 2014.

The event will be held on Jan. 11, 2015 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California and will be aired on NBC.
